KACE Product Support Question

Patch management - give the user an option to apply patches within a specific period of time - or start patch managemement manually?

02/08/2017 501 views

Hello Ninjas,

Really hoping someone can give an answer to this - we have Patch management setup on our K1000 (Detect and Deploy) without any real "labels" (not sure exactly how to use those just yet) but as of now our users are getting sick of the Patch notification popping up at an inopportune time and they have to choose snooze or ok. This wouldn't be an issue but in some instances they just want to wait another half hour or certain period of time because they will be headed to lunch or home soon. Unfortunately the way we have it setup it is set for a specific time frame before the popup comes back (1 hour - 8 snoozes max limit).

I have looked through some documentation and the patch management but don't see a way to allow the user to allow patches to run at their next opportune moment...would someone be able to give me some insight and maybe a few links etc on if this is possible... also is it possible to give a user (or an admin even) a way to start patches applyhing manually from the users PC?

Thanks Tons.

This isn't currently an option, unfortunately. There is an item on the KACE User Voice forum that you can vote up:
